Currently, the IP infrastructure is widely available, which reduces the deployment and implementation cost of IP-based wireless networks. But, the corresponding researches on Quality of Service (QoS) in wireless mobile networks have not been done sufficiently. Although All-IP network has gotten the spotlight for both wired and wireless integrated networks, it has some unavoidable defects as it is based on best-effort IP transmission technologies. By focusing our attention on this point, we propose an Advanced QoS Provisioning Scheme (AQPS) that can provide satisfied QoS for multimedia applications based on accurate traffic measurements. With the AQPS, we consider 1xEV-DV system as a target system, extract QoS requirements for this system, and develop a corresponding QoS provisioning method using CDMA traffic measurement. The AQPS is designed to estimate delay parameters between a mobile station and a BTS (or repeater), verify whether the mobile station can support RSVP or not, operate a corresponding scheduler, and assign appropriate time slots based on traffic classes. One of the interesting results of this research is that the capability of distinguishing BTS' traffic from repeater's traffic helps save implementation cost of CDMA systems. The AQPS has been verified to outperform the existing system used in the current CDMA network and to efficiently manage network resources by computer simulations.
